Integrative Nutrition Graduates Are Making a Difference this Food Day!

On October 24, 2011 the first annual Food Day will bring awareness to the need for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way. Food Day seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life—parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and people who just love food. Thousands of events in homes, schools, churches, farmers markets, city halls, and state capitals are being planned all over the country. 

When we announced our partnership with Food Day we began to hear from our community of students, graduates and health coaches, about the amazing events that they are planning.

We asked our community for some tips on how they got involved with food day and here is what we found out:

“I learned about Food Day and met Mike Hernandez, the NYC Coordinator for Food Day, through being a part of the Public Health Association of New York City's (PHANYC's) Policy and Legislative Committee.  I contacted people on the IIN Linked In group, as well as through my personal networks to inform them about Food Day and bring them together to network, collaborate and formulate event ideas.” – Jennifer M. Celio ‘07

“I created the Nourished By Neighbors program during my certification process at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Nourished By Neighbors is an opportunity to share in the energetics of local, seasonal foods prepared with love and enjoyed in the company of neighbors. The next Nourished By Neighbors will coincide with Food Day!”– Brian Hedgpeth ‘11
